  1. Don’t look for Sixers to make moves at trade deadline

    Jan 14, 2013, 8:53 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76er Bynum walks past a teammate before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Toronto Raptors in Philadelphia

    Philadelphia general manager Tony DiLeo doesn’t know really what cards he’s been dealt. Last summer he made a bold move — he shipped out Andre Iguodala and rebuilt the team around Andrew Bynum. There are not many athletic, true centers in the league and Philly landed itself one. Bynum averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds…

  2. James Harden goes behind the back and through the legs before getting the bucket against the Sixers (VIDEO)

    Jan 13, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Detroit Pistons

    The Rockets couldn’t beat the Sixers in Philadelphia on Saturday, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying on the part of James Harden. Harden finished with 29 points on 10-19 shooting, to go along with nine rebounds and six assists. But none of his baskets were as pretty as this one that he converted…

  4. Report: Sixers explored trade for Thunder’s Eric Maynor

    Jan 8, 2013, 8:59 AM EDT

    Eric Maynor

    The one position you would think the Philadelphia 76ers are set is point guard — Jrue Holiday has taken a huge step forward and is a borderline All-Star this season. But Philly apparently was looking for some depth there, tweets John Mitchell of the Philadelphia Inquirer. According to a source with the knowledge of the…

  5. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, but it’s close

    Jan 7, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Atlanta Hawks

    To be honest, you could have ranked the top three in this week’s PBT NBA Power Rankings and been fine. I’m giving the top spot to the Thunder this week because I think they’d beat the Clippers or Spurs in a seven game series right now. But not easily. 1. Thunder (26-7, Last week ranked…

  6. J.R. Smith believes an All-Star spot is within reach

    Jan 5, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    J.R. Smith has been lauded for his play in New York this season, coming off the bench to provide a solid scoring punch at 16.6 points per game, while giving the team an active defensive presence on the perimeter. Smith’s name, along with that of the Clippers’ Jamal Crawford, has been widely mentioned when discussing…

  7. Latest All-Star voting returns in, Charles Barkley will not be happy

    Jan 3, 2013, 4:01 PM EDT

    APTOPIX NBA All Star Basketball

    Apparently, you folks have no concern whatsoever for Charles Barkley’s feelings. The day after Barkley said Dwight Howard and Kevin Garnett have not played well enough to be part of the All-Star starters, they are both in. Howard solidly, he’s a lock, and Garnett has stretched out his lead over Chris Bosh. Basically, nothing has…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nets, Warriors get statement wins

    Jan 3, 2013, 8:01 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets' Williams drives against Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while figuring out what’s in and what’s out for 2013… Nets 110, Thunder 93: Well, P.J. Carlesimo has his signature win and for a night the Nets looked like the team from the first weeks of the season. Oh, they’re…

  9. Three Stars of the night: Getting your team wins against elite

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:58 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There were so many people who could have made three stars of the night tonight we could have done 10 stars of the night. But, for the sake of my sanity (such as it is) we are keeping it at three. So how do you separate the top three? It’s not just numbers, but who…

  10. Steve Nash says Sixers Jrue Holiday should be an All-Star

    Jan 2, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Jrue Holiday

    Is Jrue Holiday an All-Star player? Holiday wants to be and after he dropped 26 points and 10 assists on the Lakers Tuesday night Steve Nash told the Los Angeles Times he thinks Holiday should be. (Insert your own joke about playing like an All-Star against Steve Nash’s defense here.) “Obviously they’re a different team…

  11. Kobe Bryant on Lakers: “We’re old as s***”

    Jan 2, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    BKN-BLAZERS-LAKERS

    It was as if the Ghost or Losses Past came to visit the Lakers Tuesday night — Philadelphia was more athletic, more aggressive, got big nights from young stars Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner (combined 48 points) and the Lakers looked a step slow. The result was a 103-99 Lakers loss that looked like so…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lots of ‘Melo, not much else for Knicks

    Jan 2, 2013, 3:18 AM EDT

    Hawks forward Smith reacts after a shot in the first half during their game against the Celtics in Game One of their NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs basketball game in Atlanta

    Play enough basketball and chances are you’ll run into a player who likes to justify his relentless jump shooting with a catchy phrase like, “you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take” or “there’s a reason it’s called feeling it instead of thinking it” or maybe “I was open.” These people, of course,…

  14. Three Stars of the Night: An Odd Scoring Battle

    Dec 30, 2012, 2:36 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez, Kyrie Irving

    With 22 teams in action, you’d expect the usual suspects to be the big scorers of the night. Guys like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and James Harden. The guys battling Kobe Bryant for the scoring title. Those guys. Nope! Saturday was a little bit wild and crazy, and as a result we had Luis Scola…

  15. No changes atop latest All-Star voting, but Lin and Bosh could sneak in

    Dec 27, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    NBA fans around the globe love Kobe Bryant. Stunning, I know. The latest update on the NBA All-Star voting is out and there are no changes among the starters for either conference — but it’s starting to get close for a few guys. What is different is that Kobe moved past LeBron James as the…

  16. Three Stars of the Night: Digging the long ball

    Dec 27, 2012, 1:07 AM EDT

    James Harden

    How important is the long ball to the modern NBA offense? If the season ended today, four teams would place in the all-time top-40 for best team 3-point percentage – the Spurs, Knicks, Thunder and Heat. The best offensive teams seem to manufacture plenty of looks from behind the arc, and in that spirit, we’re…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nowitzki is back and the Spurs could not care less

    Dec 24, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Elton Brand

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while starting you Christmas shopping finally…. Spurs 129, Mavericks 91: Dirk Nowitizki is back and… yikes. San Antonio just dominated that game, hitting 20-of-30 three pointers, driving into the lane, basically doing whatever they wanted whenever they wanted. Danny Green led…

  18. Jrue Holiday returns, says he will play Friday vs. Atlanta

    Dec 21, 2012, 12:11 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday stretches past Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett in Game 6

    Jrue Holiday — who has been the focal point of the Philadelphia offense for most of the season — has missed the last four games with a sprained foot. That he’s not totally sure how he got. Nonetheless the result has been four 76ers losses. The good new is he and Evan Turner told media…

  19. Thursday And-1 Links: Steve Nash went through a full practice with Lakers

    Dec 20, 2012, 4:28 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Steve Nash went through a five-on-five, full contact practice with the Lakers Thursday.…

  20. Jrue Holiday likely out, what Sixers really need is free throws

    Dec 18, 2012, 3:37 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    After taking some shots at shootaround Tuesday morning, Jrue Holiday told Dei Lynam of CSNPhilly.com that his injured foot hurt more than it did on Monday morning. That was the morning after he worked out before the Sixers lost to the Lakers. Nothing is official, but draw your own conclusions on him playing Tuesday night…

  21. NBA Power Rankings: Right now, Clippers are second best in West

    Dec 17, 2012, 2:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin and Chris Paul run off the bench to celebrate a basket against the Toronto Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    What we see in December is not always a great predictor of what we see in the playoffs, but the Clippers look very good lately. Better than their more talked about roommate in Los Angeles. 1. Thunder (19-4, Last week ranked No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row. I still think…

  22. Jrue Holiday out with sprained foot

    Dec 14, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    HOLIDAY_JRUE

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday isn’t sure how he sprained his foot, but we should be able to safely eliminate “bowling injury” from the list. Holiday has been an absolute workhorse for the 76ers this season, leading the team in scoring (19), assists (9), and minutes (38.5). That type of court time is creeping…

  23. Nothing shocking here: Kobe, LeBron lead All-Star ballot early returns

    Dec 13, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    We don’t exactly need Nate Silver to break down these voting returns and trends — the players in the lead early in the NBA All-Star balloting almost always stay on top. Occasionally guys close small gaps, but generally what you see now is what you get. In which case — good job public. No glaring…

  24. More Sixers injury woes? Holiday to have MRI on foot.

    Dec 13, 2012, 1:40 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    Haven’t the basketball gods already had enough fun with Sixers, dealt the enough of an injury woe for one season in the knees of Andrew Bynum? Apparently not. After racking up some heavy minutes recently, Jrue Holiday is getting an MRI on his sore foot and it sounds like he could miss at least the…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pierce, Rondo lead Celtics to win

    Dec 13, 2012, 6:57 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching the Sandy relief concert and thinking the Who looked really old… Celtics 117, Mavericks 115 (2OT): This game was fun. It entertained. Oh, no it wasn’t pretty at all — Dallas had 27 turnovers — but it had its…
